“It's a Fairfield Inn”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2010

We stayed one night, passing through town. I got a great rate at a state government discount. The place was decent for a one night stay, a typical fairfield inn. I'm not impressed with the brand. Towel rack kept falling off the wall, but otherwise basically clean.

By far the best hotel in South Boston. Great rooms, great service, super clean; exceptionally comfortable stay.

I was born and raised in South Boston so I know theres not a lot of hotels to choose from, especially newer/clean ones! For South Boston, this is one of the top 2-3 hotels (see also Holiday Inn or Berry Hill Estate). The rooms are new, clean, spacious, etc - everything you'd want plus a little of something you don't want: NOISE from your neighbors. I mean the walls must be made of paper. I have NEVER been in a hotel room where sound travelled like this before. Our neighbors were a group of adult men who were not out-of-line in their actions or noise level. One man answered his cell phone and I could hear virtually every word of his part of the conversation. Needless to say, if your neighbors wake up or go to bed before/after you, you stand a good chance of being woken up by normal conversations and noises going on in their rooms.

We complained about this to the front desk who at first didnt seem to be willing to compensate us, but they ended up coming through and offering a 50% credit (only stayed one night).

My advice, you dont have much to choose from in South Boston so I wouldnt NOT stay here, but ask for a room on the top floor, possibly a corner room - or an interior room where no other guests are beside or above/below you. South Boston is not very large so unless you're in town for a big race, chances are the hotel will have many vacancies and a room by itself shouldnt be hard to come by. Good Luck!

This hotel is a rather new hotel, and the place was spotless, and had a nice new clean smell throughout. They have a good mid size pool and hot tub, of which was very nice after a stressful day. The check in & out personnel were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, with flat screen tv, and excellent high speed internet access. The only drawback to this hotel was the fact that it was on a main road, and when trucks come by you hear them throughout the night. The room has a in room thermostat, and turning on the blower to ON helped muffle the noise. But overall, Excellent.

We had a wonderful experience from beginning to end. This was a great getaway and made us glad that we tried it. The hotel was very clean, rooms were spacious and very quiet to any outside noise. Indoor pool and whirlpool were inviting.Continental breakfast was excellent.... kept well stocked with attendent that was quick to offer help. Will definetely return!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2010

I have stayed at this hotel four times over the last six months. Last week, I spent four nights in a row there. The first time I stayed at the hotel, I was extremely impressed. Each time I have stayed since then, I have been somewhat disappointed. On the plus side, the hotel is new. The bed linens are very comfortable, and you get several fluffy pillows on the bed, which I really liked. The bathrooms have spacious showers with glass doors, which was very nice. The staff is always very nice.

On the downside, the "suites" don't provide much comfortable seating. They have a loveseat which is really only comfortable for one person. One suite I stayed in had a desk chair that was stained, and the room smelled like someone had been smoking in their, and it had been sprayed with deoderizer to cover it up. It smelled like smoky pot pourri! On my most recent trip, there was no soap on the sink in my room, no tissues, only about 1/4 of a roll of TP, and the coffeemaker had no carafe. It seemed like housekeeping forgot to finish the room. When I complained at check out, they apologized, but did nothing to make it up to me. While I would not necessarily expect that normally, I have booked two rooms for about 10 nights over the past six months, so it might have been nice to do something to encourage me to return.

My other issue is their breakfast. When I first stayed there, they had fresh fruit, cereal, waffles, breakfast sandwiches, bagels, muffins, etc. This latest time, there was never any fresh fruit, which I found to be odd. And, the pastries, etc. seemed stale. I ended up getting breakfast elsewhere for the remainder of my stay.

If you are considering staying there, one tip to keep in mind: Ask for a room on the backside of the hotel. There is quite a bit of noise from the road in front. Also, if you are not comfortable being on ground level, make sure you ask for a room on the third floor, because in the back, the second floor is ground level.

In general, I would go back to this hotel because it is new, and there are not many other places to go instead. I am disappointed, however, that their quality continues to slip.

I recently stayed at the newly built Fairfield Inn in South Boston VA, and I had a great experience. The staff was very friendly and outgoing. I had one of the best night's sleep I've had in a long time, and breakfast in the morning hit the spot! I will defiantly be staying at the Fairfield Inn in South Boston again.
